TODAY IS GREASY FOOD DAY
The world is full of a veritable cavalcade of delicious foods, and the vast majority of them are filled to the brim with fats and grease! While those who are on a crusade for better health often find themselves avoiding these amazing foods in favor of a thinner waistline, Greasy Food Day encourages us to take a day off from that diet and remember the good things in life.
Otherwise, as Ms. Jafra says, what else are we living for?
On this day, it’s time to celebrate living for Greasy Food!
